Krzyzewski Says He Has No Interest in Nets Job

You knew he would be asked, and you knew how he would respond. For the record, on the morning of the national championship game and about 12 hours after news broke that Mikhail Prokhorov would offer him $12-15 million a year to coach the Nets, Mike Krzyzewski told ESPN's Chris Sheridan that he "wouldn't have any interest in the job." Krzyzewski says that he hasn't been contacted by the Nets at all.

Rod Thorn, obviously perturbed at the leak, would only say, "I have never talked to Mike about or position. Anybody looking to hire a coach, I'm sure would have Mike near the very top of the list."  Meanwhile, Jeff Van Gundy dismissed speculation that he is on the Nets' coaching short list.. He declined comment, other than to say "there's nothing to it."
